Strength:

cheap, good fit, good ventilation

Weakness:

none yet

Fit and air ventilation are alright. Stability not yet tested :-)
Obivously, the design was copied from Giro Helios, but it's less than half the price !!

Strength:

Nice price,(IR£50), nice colour, fits firmly. Those vents keep my head reasonably cool in temperate Irish weather.

Weakness:

While it fits firmly, this isn't the most comfortable helmet I tried on. This could of course be down to the shape of my head. All the comfortable helmets were significantly more expensive.

A good buy.For £50, I don't think that I could have gotten a better looking or better value helmet. Now that I cycle far more frequently than I used to, (and know what to look for), I will probably be upgrading to something alot more comfortable, and hopefully a bit cooler.

Strength:

During a fast downhill I crashed with my mountainbike and fel on my head. Because I wore my Met fireball I can still write this. This helmet took a very bog blow and I only had a little headache.

This is defenetly a life-saver. The helmet is very strong, light, has a good ventilation and fits well.

Strength:

weight, ventilation, fit, compact size.

Weakness:

availability, not on sale in the US.

This helmet fits my head so well it is like tailor made. It is also quite compact, unlike the Giros and others out there. I just wish MET would start selling it in the US.

Strength:

Good name,
Easy attach / detach peak
Nice colours,
Nice vents,
Strap fastens on jaw rather than under chin - safer for throat,
Universal size, adjusts to fit anyone.

Weakness:

Strap fastens in a place that restricts the adam's apple (even on loosest setting, and I've got a medium head).

Enough vents to keep you cool, and poke your fingers through to scratch your head.
Despite having a cool head, you still get more sweaty than if you had no helmet on.
Safer fastening (not under chin).
Universal size.
Buy it.
